The Boyer Faculty Scholars Program is for faculty members who:
- have previously taught at least one course1 or conducted a project (such as research) that is community-engaged,
- want to take their community-engaged teaching and research to the next level, and
- want to serve as campus leaders in the scholarship of engagement.
All full-time, permanent faculty members are invited to apply, because all are integral to the fulfillment of the campus mission. Tenured, tenure-track, lecturer and clinical faculty members have had demonstrable leadership roles in promoting the scholarship of engagement within UM-Flint. Furthermore, the program models the University Outreach values of justice and fairness, community building, economic vitality, being in service, and healthy relationships.
